Decided to go a little "higher end" compared w/ my usual accommodations and stay in the Novotel for my first trip to Ho Chih Minh City. Its a stone's throw from District 1, but officially in District three. It is close enough to all the major sights that one might want to see in HCMC. The famous coffee chain is across the street, and street food vendors are always close.
The breakfast buffet was excellent with a variety of choices - includes egg station and pho station.
The staff very helpful and accommodating. Being a platinum member w/ the hotel chain, I was upgraded to a lounge floor (which is open from 6am to 10pm) on check-in.
Had slight hiccup at the beginning of my stay, but that was duly corrected, and i got a personal message from the hotel manager offering up an apology. I was very impressed with their service. I stayed in room 1904, which had one of the most amazing views of HCMC. A really great room. A special thank you to Mr. Hung (front desk) who accommodated a late check out after i told him about a late flight i had that day. I was very happy with my stay here. I strongly recommend a high floor (if possible) to take in the stellar views of the city.
Pool was great and the in-house spa was reasonably priced as well. Overall, extremely satisfied with my stay here. Oh, I also like the cappuccino machine in the room! great start to the morning.

Having visited Ho Chi Minh on 11 ocassions and having stayed at various hotels such as the Sofitel, Magestic and the Chancery, this hotel is absolutely the best.
The management and staff have to be complimented on their assistance, friendliness and ethics and truly deserve the best accolades that that can be directed to them.
The hotel itself is first class with the rooms spacious, clean and truly comfortable.
Dining facilities were a true delight and the roof top bar on the 20th. floor was just unbelievable with the views over the city and to just be able to sit back and relax and enjoy the views and have a nice cold drink made the whole experience of exploring your wonderful city a delight.
So much more to say but have used up my 200 character mimimum unfortunately.

This hotel is well located. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The pool is a nice cool retreat with prompt service for drinks and meals. The hotel is a welcome oasis after the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh and the warm welcome as the young man opened the doors for us with a big smile refreshed us instantly. The ice cold beer was a good follow up.
Meals were well priced and the breakfast excellent. This hotel is a good base to explore the city and the staff were very helpful in suggesting places to see that were off the normal tourist agenda adding a great deal to our holiday
